Hi, just wondering how long after you finished treatment before starting to use vaginal Dilators? My radiotherapy nurse said to wait until I've had my first clinic appointment (4-6 weeks post treatment) so just wondering if this is others experience. Not particularly looking forward to it tbh but realise it's necessary. I'm 2 weeks post treatment ending (brachytherapy) and doing okay.
Also wondering about menopause symptoms as had chemo/radiotherapy and been having flushes also up at the loo a couple of times a night but hard to know if these are menopause or treatment side effects! They told me I'd start early menopause because of the treatment but not been mentioned again. Can I assume that 11x chemo, 25 x pelvic radiotherapy and 2x brachytherapy will have killed my ovaries or do they test for this in some way? Sorry the last part of this post should maybe be in the menopause section.
Diagnosed with adenocarcinoma 2b with one lymph node involved 1/7/19, started chemo 15/7/19, stated radiotherapy 26/8/19. 2 brachytherapy and end of treatment 6/10/19.
